< than $1050 for a mom and dad who want above all else for it to be simple! I would rather have simplicity over video quality. We'll be using it for family only. Just bought a 17" PB, I'll have 2gb ram at the end of the week, 128mb VRAM. iMovie HD is on my new Apple, I'm assuming you don't have to have HD for editing? I've never used any editing software. In fact our current video camera just bit the dust (finally!), it was an analog with the small video tape. With the installed superdrive how much video time can we record onto a dvd?
